Tombstone Tuesday: Goodhue County MN Burials

   Goodhue County, Minnesota was home to at least one major population of Luxembourgers - the settlers at Bellechester. While you can learn about their lives in many ways, accessing burial records is probably one of the easiest. Your first major source of such records is, as always, Find A Grave. The Catholic cemetery in Bellechester, St. Mary's, lists over 600 burials. On the off-chance your ancestor is not buried there, you have another option. The Goodhue County Historical Society keeps something they call the Dalby database. It's a listing of burial information from a large section of southern Minnesota. They charge $15 per half hour for research, but it looks to be a good way to get around a brick wall.
